Wellness Guide To Bozeman

Montana might be the USA’s best kept secret. Isaac + I went to Montana on our honeymoon + instantly fell in love [we may or may not have added “Build A Cabin In Montana” on our dream list ; )]. Our first stop was Bozeman! Bozeman is very much one of the new it outdoor towns, but doesn’t feel touristy at all [yet ; )]. Highly recommend making a stop in Bozeman if you visit Montana!

Coffee + Cafes

#1] Partner Coffee: Get the “lazy river” with half + half

#2] Treeline Coffee: Gorgeous space, great coffee, + fun spot to hang out/work

#3] Wild Crumb: Amazing pastries!

For Next Time: Essy’s Coffee + Frozen Yogurt

Eats + Drinks

#1] Blackbird: Must, must, must eat. We went here twice in 3 days… which is saying something ; ). Menu changes often — make sure to get desert!

#2] Feed Cafe: Cutest breakfast spot in a red barn. Lots of outdoor seating, too!

#3] Faber’s Bakery + Deli: Lots of baked goods, but we actually loved their sandwiches from here! Get one to take with you on a long hike : ).

#4] SHINE Beer Sanctuary + Bottle Shop: Beer hall with a good atmosphere… + tacos!

#5] Reverly: Loved the pizza here! + good happy hour menu.

For Next Time: Mountain Berry Bowls [acai!], Zesty Booch, Little Star Diner, Nordic Brew Works

Wellness

#1] Yoga Classes To Try: Ekam Yoga, Bend Beyond, The Practice Power Yoga

#2] Massage: We got connected to the best massage therapist ever, Lydia. Highly, highly recommend!

#3] Bozeman Community Co-op: All your nourishing needs inside!

#4] Shen: Spa that focuses on accupuncture, cupping, + massage. We didn’t get a treatment here, but we stepped inside + it was *so* cute! Also had a lot of people recommend it, so wanted to add it to the list!

#5] Walk Around + Explore! One of my favorite things to do is simply walk aound a city + explore. On your walk check out Biome Slow Craft Collection, Inner Alchemy, + Heyday. Also, if you are here in the summer — check out the farmer’s market on Tuesday evenings at Lindley Park!

#6] Go Hiking! Of course : ) Bozeman is a big jumping out point for Yellowstone National Park [1.5–2 hours away], but there are plenty of other amazing hikes to check out near Bozeman. Use AllTrails to find your adventure!

Stay:

We stayed at RSVP Hotel which was nice + they let you use their bikes for free, which was essential for biking around Bozeman [since RSVP Hotelwasn’t on the *main* street]. It also had a pool, fruit infused water, + free champagne ; ). We also looked into The LARK, which is perfect if you want to be able to easily walk everywhere.

Pro Tips:

#1] We went during the summer [which was amazing!], but if you are a fan of snow — visit in the winter! Bozeman is super close to ski resorts.

#2] We had 3 full days to explore the city, but felt like we could have easily done everything we wanted to do in 2 full days!

#3] You don’t need a car for Bozeman [unless you plan on hiking!]. There are places in town to rent bikes if needed, but everything is pretty easily walkable.

#4] Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport is only 15 minutes away from the city center — so easy!

Have you been to Bozeman? What did I miss?! Let me know : )
